A sentence is a living thing …

I love my Sunday mornings with The Gwarlingo Sunday Poem. The Sunday Poem introduces me to new poets, Michelle’s posts are like windows into new worlds, new words … and new revelations.

Today I learned about Ed Skoog, who says tremendous things – like:

A sentence is a living thing and that’s the medium that we work in as poets. When I think of sentences, I don’t just think about grammar and copyediting. I think of the medium in which we prove we’re living.

While I’m diving into Skoog’s words, you can get the full Gwarlingo story on him here 

ps: Elissa Washuta’s review of Ed Skoog’s Rough Day on goodreads goes like this:

I’ve never read a book of poems like this before–I really couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know where the tension was going to go. The lines are full of surprise in ways I don’t think I’ve ever experienced. I want to read it a hundred more times and I probably will.

    Thank you for teaching me something new today! I was always told you have to write what can not be captured in a painting, words matter!
